Regular pressure treated lumber or "Plastics"?

It is time to replace the decking on my deck!
I am familiar with pressure treated lumber but know absolutely nothing about the new "Plastic/whatever" decking material.
Can anyone give some really good reasons to go with one over the other? Please expound to your hearts content!

wood better : its a lot cheaper and easier to work with

"plastics" better: requires virtually no maintenance and will last a very long time

"plastics" worse: costs a LOT more than wood (around 4 times as much) and is a lot heavier and difficult to work with
